TalentPool, a talent matching platform that connects UK SMEs with recent graduates, is now seeking 350,000 through its equity crowdfunding campaign on Seedrs. Founded in 2013, TalentPool stated its on a mission to change the way that companies find talent.
“We’ve created a platform that identifies suitable individuals for a role and connects them with an employer, automating what was previously a largely manual process. The result is a revenue-generating model, which has already broken even. As the process takes place on a platform, we can charge less than half the standard fees of a traditional recruitment agency, fundamentally disrupting the space in which we operate.”
TalentPool also reported that to date, it has more than 50,000 job-seekers join its platform. The company noted it has worked with more than 500 companies to date, sign up new clients and launch campaigns almost every day, over 50 clients so far in 2018.
“Every interaction that happens on TalentPool is direct and meaningful. When an employer approaches you on TalentPool it means that you fully match the criteria that they have set out for their role and they think you’d be a pretty great fit for it. You can then decide whether to progress their role or not.”
All funds from the equity crowdfunding campaign will use to continue the expansion of TalentPool. Since its launch, the funding round has raised more than £345,000 from nearly 50 investors. It is currently set to close later this spring.
